Obviously, we are in the business of making things cute. We love creating vignettes for parties and weddings that inspire fun and look beautiful. Our favorite creations usually involve some level of repurposing and making old things useful again. So, for today’s Seasonal Sunday, we wanted to share this cute little project that could inspire you to get repurposing for some backyard party fun! Who doesn’t like a popcorn bar, right?
old wine barrel lid (or you can make some scrap wood work, too!)
scrap wood for kickstand
screwdriver & screws
Sharpie paint pen
Since my wine barrel lid was soooo bad, I used wood glue to strengthen things up. I may even use a thin piece of wood and screws to strengthen everything on the back. If you are using just fun pieces of scrap wood, then screwing the pieces to a back support piece is definitely the way to go!
Obviously, if you are not as impatient as myself, you would wait for the glue to dry….but I am not that girl! Time to use the hinge and attach a kickstand.
Time to scribe. You can eyeball fonts like I did here, or you can trace some fonts that you print out. When using the paint pens on raw wood, don’t be alarmed that it might take a couple of coats to be legible. The paint will really soak into the wood for the first coat, for sure.
Not bad for a pretty darn quick project!
As you can see, there are all sorts of ways to have fun with display for your popcorn bar. Use paper bags, fun striped popcorn containers, shakers with seasonings, anything goes! This bar was done for our “Sparkles & Spurs” party, so we added a touch of bling…but all the way rustic for a backyard party would be a blast!
